LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ammonia.
That's what police say witnesses smelled coming from a home on Endeavor Way, west of the intersection of Preston Hwy. and Blue Lick Road, Saturday evening.
Police say they knocked on the door of the home and spoke with 35-year-old Kyle D. Douglas, who gave them permission to come inside.
That's when police found a "visible cloud of haze" with a "strong chemical odor" coming from the kitchen area, according to arrest reports. Police say they were so alarmed by what they witnessed that they immediately exited the residence and evacuated nearby homes.
Police called in a special team to investigate.
"Upon search of the residence, the team discovered an active meth lab, along with several ingredients to manufacture meth," the arrest report states. "Suspected meth was also found on a plate with several pieces of tin foil in a container with suspected meth residue on them."
Police arrested Douglas, as well as an alleged accomplice, 36-year-old James S. Johnson. Both men were charged with manufacturing meth, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
